Abstract

Islam is both a religion and a philosophy. According to studies conducted in Pakistan, journalists' missions and ideals in Muslim-majority areas closely match Islamic requirements to speak the truth, pursue retribution, and work for the public interest. Journalists who are Muslim are now perplexed. They do have some guidelines for reporting about Islam. This research was conducted using a qualitative approach. It is employed as a data collection tool. Similarly, books, periodicals, essays, and Online sources have all been employed for the study. This research investigation was carried out using analytical and critical assessment procedures. These analytic analyses are then reviewed in light of major study sources such as the Qur’an and Sunnah. This article presents findings that support the claim that journalists in Muslim states like Pakistan approach their job through the lens of Islamic ideals. The research concentrates on journalistic standard practices in Islam as researched by diverse experts, to compile a fuller overview of Islamic journalistic rules. The study examines key characteristics of Islamic principles that aid in the formation of societal perspectives and assesses Islam's significant component of human awareness. In summation, the outcomes of our study revealed that participants had a poor view of Pakistani digital media as a result of what they regarded to be prejudiced, erroneous, and unethical coverage.
